't understand why the obama administration would not have encouraged a country developing a new constitution to put in a provision for impeachment. don't know why this administration would not have encouraged that. but it wasn't there. so when president morsi vastly exceeded the authority of the constitution and began moving toward being a monarch, millions of people reported 20, 30, 33 million egyptians rose up. 90 million people in the whole contry. they rose up and demanded that the president be removed. the christian pope in egypt told me personally, he said, this was the will of the people. please tell the administration and people in america this was coup. this was the people of egypt rising up. as he talked about arm in arm the moderate muslims, secularists, christians joined hands, joined arms and protested and demanded that the military remove president morsi. and they did. and as these articles have talked about, the violence in august, the violence in the summer against christian churches, 73 or so burned down, christians killed and tortured, that was by the muslim brotherhood. an

do? no one wants to live off the bear minimum. but there is a support system in this country that is very important to the stability of society. earlier today, president obama slammed the idea of dependency, and stuck up for the hard-working people on government assistance with low wages. >> these programs are not typically hammocks for people to just lie back and relax. these programs are almost always temporary means for hard-working people to stay afloat while they try to find a new job. or going to school to retrain themselves for the jobs that are out there. or sometimes just to cope with a bout of bad luck. >> who do you think is telling the truth? o'reilly or the president of the united states? you be the judge. meanwhile, there is rush limbaugh. he knows a thing or two about drug addiction. limbaugh is also wasting air time attacking poor people on food stamps this holiday season. he said food stamps are making poor people obese. >> most of the childhood obesity is minority. african-american and this story links it to food stamps! which makes total sense. we've got ne
obama's speech. it was from the center for american progress. [video clip] >> for one thing, these trends are bad for our economy. one study finds that growth is more fragile and recession is more frequent in countries with greater inequality. .hat makes sense when families have less to spend, businesses have fewer customers. households rack up greater mortgage and credit card debt. topentrated wealth at the will not result in broadly based consumer spending that drives our economy and with less regulation, it may contribute to risky speculative bubbles. rising inequality and declining mobility are bad for families and social cohesion. not just because we tend to trust our institutions us, but studies show we actually tend to test -- trust each other less. host: that was the president yesterday talking about income inequality. toare turning to all of you get your stories. are you able to move up the economic ladder? we have the lines divided by age. start calling us now. you can put your comments on facebook or tweet us as well. a response from house speaker john boehner's s
benefits. what is it that the republicans have against the down trodden in this country? those folks who are trying to recycle back into the economy? on saturday, president obama called out republicans for targeting americans in need. >> it shouldn't be a partisan issue. for decades, congress has voted to offer relief to job seekers. including when the unemployment rate was lower than it is today. but now that economic lifeline is in jeopardy. all because republicans in this congress, which is on track to be be the most unproddive in history, have so far refused to extend it. >> well, i have to give credit to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too mu
. thousands of minimum-wage employees in hundreds of cities around the country are not working today. -- thee protesting protests at this broadway mcdonald's started before dawn. withyees marched out demands an hour before lunch time. the iconic obama posters have been changed from hope to help. they are wearing santa hats and jingle bells, but it is a union to moveational movement them from $7.25 an hour to more than double to nearly $15. the fast food industry warns if you raise the minimum wage, you create fewer jobs and raise the prices of meals by as much as 20%. perhaps fueling this one-day strike and demonstrations is the fact that president obama has expressed support in the past couple of days for the movement that has drawn nearly 50,000 signatures on an online petition to secure the right to unionize. this woman says, we have to pay extensive rent, food, and metro. $10 after 11 years, it's just not enough. >> back here live, a typical fast food employee makes just $19,000 a year. some of these folks say they are willing to get arrested to get the point across. right now, they are o
to combine extraordinary generosity with power. a man adored, revered by this country. our greatest pride. s then a brand- new united states senator from illinois. here was mr. obama's reaction late today to the death. >> we have lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth. he no longer belongs to us, he belongs to the ages. through his fierce dignity and unbending will to sacrifice his own freedom for the freedom of others, he transformed south africa and moved all of us. >> pelley: president obama used the word "modiba" an honorary title that translates as father. major garrett at the white house tells us this evening mr. obama plans to attend the state funeral in south africa. that is likely to be in about ten days. nelson mandela will be remembered as a man who emerged from a tiny village to become a defining figure of our time. he was born on july 18th, 1918 in a village called umvezo. his mother named him holy sashava meaning troublemaker, but later a teacher renamed him nelson. he moved to johannesburg
country's leaders past and present. we heard from president obama last night. let's go to the white house now and hear from brianna keilar. this was a personal moment for barack obama who talked about the influence of nelson mandela when he was a young man. >> reporter: that's right, john. it was just huge. president obama was 19 years old when he first got involved with the anti-apartheid movement. the first time he gave what being call a political speech was back in 1981. he was a sophomore at occidental college when he spoke out against apartheid. for president obama, nelson mandela was a personal hero and personal idol who struggled his earliest ambitions. >> i am one of the first who grew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue of policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. >> reporter: they met in person only briefly in 2005 before obama became president. the two leaders, each standing in history as the first black president of his nation, spoke occasionally by phone. president obama penned the forw
apartheid in south africa to the battle over obama care. >> he was fighting against some great injustice. i would make the argument we have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that has taken over and is controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center in that. >> ryan, what gives? >> i think we have to add apartheid -- >> f.w. de klerk, such a better person than mitch mcconnell. >> we have to add apartheid to that list of issues you shouldn't compare in modern american politics -- >> right. naziism, slavery, apartheid. >> there are issues that were unique historically and no matter how bad you think things are in american politics right now, comparisons are never going to be apt. >> nelson mandela supported universal health care. i think the comparison, like the pope, i think the comparison is kind of -- >> i would tell you this. i think neither side should be using the man, a dead man, deceased man we are honoring to make cheap political shots. >> amen to that. ana, ryan, neera, you guys continue in the green room. >>
and poor. it's not a new story or a new subject for president obama. he talked ariel castro it two years ago in a benchmark speech in kansas. and he spoke a little bit about in this year's state of the union. the top 1% in this country have seen their income triple over the course of the last 28 years, meanwhile the middle class has scene their income grow at a modest 1% on average over the course of that same time annually. so the president will be talking about that. he'll be talking once again renewing his call to raise the minimum wage. a lot of talk about that here in d.c. where the city council is voting to raise the minimum wage. democrats are now worried about heading into the midterm election, and with the senate up for grabs, so the president is going there, speaking to a liberal think tank, the center for american progress who is sponsoring the talk. he is bolstering his base, renewing some of his themes he has been talking about and setting his agenda not only for the state of the union speech coming up presumably last month, but also for the last three years of his presidenc

administration. >> well, i don't think it's just obama. i think it's politicians in general around the country. could be governors and other people that are involved. this is big money. the government is putting hundreds of billions of dollars into renewable energy. and these wind companies are not making a profit right now, most of them. it's the subsidies and tax credits and the grants that they're receiving from the government, it's unbelievable amount of money. the bald eagle's recovery got a micro dot of the federal money to bring them back. these wind companies are just getting a grab of money that's unbelievable. >> nobody knows more about this subject than you. you've been saving eagles for 30 years. al and challenger joining us from knoxville, tennessee. thank you very much. >> thank you, steve. >>> what do you think? e-mail us. meanwhile, 17 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, your kids' toys could contain toxic chemicals, all legal because of a loophole. what you need to know coming up. >>> and your e-mail pouring in on this. carey underwood is being attacked for appearing
's polarized. the country is polarized. barak obama, however, has made it worse. >> in what way? >> i think he's a partisan. he's an ideological partisan and we see it on everything. obamacare being the biggest example where no republican ideas, no republican votes. only straight party line vote. you see it with the senate changing the rules to limit republican power. he's all for that. so this is a president who talks about uniting the country, but when push comes to shove, he only chooses one side of every argument and therefore, the country is more divided as a result of his presidency than it was before. >> i can't tell you how many times i've heard people say, it seems like he's pitting one part of america against the other. you would hate to think that's true, but you look at the evidence and it does suggest that. >> look, it's red against blue, of course, but class warfare as well. it's about the wealthy -- he clearly has a chip on his shoulder about wealth. he doesn't mind taking wealthy people's money for his own campaign, but you get a sense he's really -- he really does not like wea
